  • Echo an Array's Value


    I currently am messing around with twitter's API and am using a class I found on the internet (http://ryanfaerman.com/twittersearch if it matters)

    It prints out all of the info I need into an array, but I'm not very good with arrays and was wondering if anyone could help.

    The array is formatted like this:

        [0] => stdClass Object
                [text] => this is my tribe http://www.sfondideldesktop.com/Images-Animals/Deers/Whitetail-Deer-B-Female-Drinking-Water.Jpg
                [to_user_id] => 
                [from_user] => laurenestelle

    I don't know how to get all this info set into individual variables though ([text] = $text).

    I think I'm suppose to use foreach, but this is really my first time using arrays like this (normally its just mysql ones and I can use a simple while and get variables through that)

    This also involves objects (Which I have 0 experience with to make everything harder)

    So can anyone help me with this?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Inserting/editing a specific spot in the array:
    PHP Code:
    $array_variable[0]->text 'Hi, my name is Shane';
    $array_variable[0]->profile_image_url 'http://images.com/myimage.jpg'
    Inserting at the end of the array:
    PHP Code:
    $array_variable[]->text 'Hi, my name is Shane';
    $array_variable[]->profile_image_url 'http://images.com/myimage.jpg'
    Searching through the array:
    PHP Code:
    foreach($array_variable as $twit)
    '<img src="' $twit->profile_image_url '" />';

      Ok, I think I got this actually. Just took some messing around (and a lot of guess and check)

      Just did this (extremely simple actually):

      PHP Code:
      foreach($results as $tweet) {
      $text $tweet->text;
      $text "<br><br>\n\n";

      My main problem was I was using array methods (like I would with mysql arrays), instead of object methods.
